6 Fun DIY Projects You Can Make With Your Family

Makes these Projects with your Family today!

Working on DIY projects together as a family teaches new skills to your kids and creates unforgettable memories.  So grab your tools and try out these six family-friendly DIY projects:

Marble art with nail polish

Gather nail polish, scrap paper, toothpicks, and craft sticks in an airy space. Fill a plastic tub with warm water and pour in the nail polish. Lower a box onto the water’s surface to create exciting artwork. 

Bookcase or a toy box

Teach your kids the necessary woodworking skills and work alongside them to build a bookshelf or a toy box. Once you are done with the woodwork, paint it together with exciting colors. Your children can use it for years to store anything from books to sports equipment. 

Treehouse

Although it requires time and effort to build a treehouse, it’s a fun and constructive activity to involve your family in. If you don’t have a tree that can support a treehouse, try building a free-standing version that can fit anywhere.

Birdfeeder

Bird feeders are the best way to invite wildlife into your home. It’s a small and quick project that you can complete on the weekend. 

Plant a garden

If you love being surrounded by nature and enjoy fresh, home-grown produce, gardening can be a rewarding family activity. Visit your local garden center to pick out seeds and let everyone plant them into pots. Nurture the plants together and harvest them as a family. 

Solar pathway lights 

Brighten your house’s exterior with environment-friendly solar lights and teach your kids the importance of sustainable alternatives. Purchase solar lights online at your local hardware store, and help your children place them evenly along the edges of your driveway, sidewalk, or garden.

HAPPY 100th Anniversary to the legendary @wgnradio  The radio station was always playing at my house growing up… mom would listen every night on her transistor radio when she was sewing or doing laundry… and Dad always had it tuned-in in the car. There was never a day that we weren’t listening to the personalities that made it so great. 
And then to actually be on the air at WGN 720 was always so surreal to me. 
I am honored and blessed to have been a very very small part of 100 years. 💙💙💙 To those who made it happen, thank you.  Long live radio!!
